BBV/Recall: Another Voting Irregularity
Edited on Tue Oct-07-03 01:18 PM by rucky

-snip-
Stanislaus County, Modesto, Ca.: Neither I nor several of my Independent, Green, or Democrat friends received sample ballots prior to the election. I called the registrar several days ago to verify that I'm registered to vote, and was assured that I was on the rolls and that my sample ballot must have been lost in the mail. I then asked about my polling location and was told that it was unchanged. For the record, ALL of my friends who didn't receive sample ballots heard the same story. While I try to NEVER trust government officials in our local Freeper-friendly, Rethug dominated offices, there was little I could do and had to just take their word for it.

I'll give you one guess what happened when I went to vote today...yep, they lied to me. First, I went to my regular polling place (a local church). The building was locked up tight, with NO outside "Vote Here" signs. Infuriated that I'd been lied to, I drove around until I found a payphone with a book, called my local elections office, and demanded to know the correct polling place. They directed me to a local office complex.

But my story isn't over yet...

FYI: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

I wrote this here first, and then duped it onto the BBV website.

2. File a complaint NOW
Don't wait until the election is over. Give name rank and serial number of the person who "helped" you by giving too small envelope.

I wondered about this when I heard on NPR a little bit ago that there were far fewer polling places than normal. I wonder which neighborhoods lost their local polling place, hmmmm?

3. File a complaint and call the Modesto newspaper - DONT LET THIS SLIDE
And tell your friends too.

We need all of this on record and in the media as much as possible.

4. Make the call!
Call the elections supervisor, call the newspaper/radio.
This is outrageous!
